Susie,

A soundex search at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp
finds 3 possibilites, but I think these 2 are the most likely options for you to research.

The one in the Ukraine seems just in the right area because my Grandfather's sister wrote she was from Bucovina which is in that area. Thanks so much!!! I searched the databases in Jewishgen but maybe I forgot to switch to the search by Soundex. I really appreciate it!!

Susie, I sent a message to you today, but I don’t see it in this thread. Did you receive one from me?

Susie, I am researching my paternal grandmother, Betti JAEGENDORF,  and great grandfather, Avraham JAEGENDORF, born in Zveniachyn, Ukraine. It is now in Zastaviskyi District, Chernivtsi Oblast, Ukraine which earlier was Zviniacze, Bukowina, Austria, then Zviniace, Cernauti, Romania. It is described as a “commune“, but was a shtetl. See map below.


Good luck in your research.
